That was Frederik Andersen and Michael Hutchinson last night versus the Sabres, but is is the Leafs starter that looks amazing to start this 2019 Preseason.
I wasn’t sure how much hot air William Nylander spewed this summer about dominating this year. He looks fantastic.
Strong on his skates, fast, and predicting where pucks will be are all part of the entire package. He WILL start scoring, and when that lid comes off…..look out.
Rasmus Sandin is exactly as hyped. I do not need to say anymore about him, he is getting the attention this camp and he absolutely deserves it. Keep playing this kid. In the NHL.
Also catching my attention was the play of Tyler Gaudet. The Hamilton native who signed a two-way contract with the Leafs has not looked out of place. A feisty player who does not shy away from the front of the net is a welcomed look on this team, and he also appears to have some skill to go with that edge. Please show me more.
Tonight the Leafs battle the Sabres again, this time with Tavares and company lineup.

Apparently Pierre Engvall went down awkwardly, and needed help off the ice. Update to follow post skate.
Excited see Neuvirth in his debut with the Leafs. Can he wrangle the backup position from Hutchinson? I am not so certain.
Watching the blueline again tonite. This is will be a common mantra for the rest of the preseason.
Get your drinks and snacks ready. It is Game Day !!
